In no other sector is the timely flow of clear information as critical as in legal services. Your communications platform needs to do more than just make and receive calls. With constant time pressures and so much work done over the phone, the solution you choose needs to offer better ways of working and tools that make your life easier. You’ll find both in Wholesale Hosted Communications.
Law firms are being forced to keep their costs down as clients want to reduce their legal bills.
Like anywhere else, IT departments in law firms are under pressure to deliver more with less money.
Clients of law firms expect a professional service and legal contacts that are easy to reach. With a lot of work done over the phone, this area is always being reviewed.
Too many employees are tied to their desks.
Legal firms can look forward to great times ahead: WHC will improve client relationships, increase efficiency and reduce costs.
Our conference and collaboration tools make it easy for teams in different places to share information and content so that they can make informed decisions on legal cases. Why just talk through something as complex as legal text when you can share documents on your computer screens?
With our ‘UC One’ clients for tablets, laptops and mobile devices, your staff can work productively from almost anywhere. To maintain confidentiality, they can also use their business identity and number from their own device when contacting clients.
UC One enables your staff to see the availability of their colleagues and how best to contact them. They can also send instant messages, perfect for private conversations in public spaces.

Business continuity and disaster recovery
WHC is remotely hosted within our environment, removing single points of failure. And as all services and features are in the cloud, you can keep your business running in the event of local issues.
You’ll never miss an important call. Features such as ‘call forward not reachable’ allow each user to have a back-up phone number, which is used automatically if their desk phone can’t be reached.
